PIANC WG184 – Design Principles for Dry Bulk Marine Terminals

A key international concern being addressed by PIANC is the lack of guidelines for planning and designing bulk cargo terminals, which handle some of the largest vessels in the world. With about 4.55 billion tonnes of bulk solid cargo being transported by sea, universal guidelines for site selection, planning and design of terminals are essential for effective, efficient and environmentally sustainable development. Providing an updated planning and design reference is especially relevant in a market where extra capacity takes time to be brought on line, while traditionally the market suffers from oversupply. PIANC Working Group (WG) 184 has thus produced a report titled ‘Design Principles for Dry Bulk Marine Terminals’ as a modern reference to cover current technology, vessel types, and bulk handling equipment now in use.
